If yesterday's epic storms left you feeling waterlogged and lazy, we feel ya. Rain is a the best excuse ever to play couch potato, day drink, and get your fill of football.
But a brand new week means no more excuses to lie around like so many post-downpour sidewalk slugs. Here's a whole host of free stuff to do for the next several days, so get out there and be social, people.
- Board Game Night at Sweat Records: Classic board games are so much better than lame iPad imitations. So get your fun on with this evening of Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Boggle and all those other blasts from the past you loved as a kid.
- Chef Ingrid Hoffmann at Miami Dade College: In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Chef Hoffmann will be signing books and talking shop. Plus, culinary students will be whipping up some of her recipes -- so there'll be noshing opportunities, too.
- Alex Berti Trio at CiFo: Hear some jazz, classical and folk sounds courtesy of one of Miami's most badass art institutions.
- The Healers at Casino Miami Jai Alai: If you're anything like us, you don't get out to the Jai Alai often enough. Now's your chance. Hear some free tunes and see a sport unlike any other.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
